Osteomyelitis is inflammation of bone tissue which is seen in patient with malnutrition and such systemic diseases caused by decreased resistant to infection. Generally, chronic osteomyelitis is treated with antibiotics and surgical debridement to remove all the dead bone tissue. In this case report, the management of mandibular osteomyelitis which is developed after surgery and application with ozone and platelet-rich fibrin are presented.
